For you local blogger gals, the details for my next presentation are now availble at http://www.mhep.org/. Go to events, workshops, then page down to the event to sign up.
I will be presenting my PA German patchwork pillowcase collection. Other small treasures will include privy bags, pot holders, and little quilts that I have made which were inspired by antique pieces. The Heritage Center will show small quilts from their collection. Attendees are invited to bring their own antique quilt for show and tell. It will be lots of fun!
